I highly doubt there are any Windows 10 System Files on those two drives. You can double check by pulling your power and holding down the power button for 30 seconds. Remove the side panel. Touch some bare metal on the case. Pull the power cables to two 500GB drives. Power up the the computer and see if it boots properly.
If you explore the two drives and only have data files on them then they would be okay to format once your data is backed up. I would allow viewing hidden and system files. Look for any system files on the drive.

The only way to be absolutely sure would be to disconnect the drives but you should be able to tell by looking at the contents of the drives. If as you say they only have backup image files on the drives then you should be fine formatting them.
